It's all in the Prep! Be ready for spring with this checklist.
Updated: Mar 10
Beat the February blues. Spring is coming! It's raining cats and dogs but I much prefer rain to snow and wind. In my eyes, today's a great day! Perfect planning day.
Here's what you need to be ready for Spring:
Get your tools ready. Sharpen lawn mower blades and get a tune up.
String trimmers, edgers, hedge trimmers, saws, blowers etc. also need a good once over to clean out filters and add fresh fluids.
Check your batteries and chargers on battery powered equipment.
Sharpen hand tools. Clean the blades to remove rust and debris.
Check your shovels, spades, rakes etc. to make sure handles are still strong and well attached. Sharpening the edges will make digging in the spring that much easier.
Inflate and inspect tires on your wheelbarrow.
Check your tires on your trailer. Trips to the landfill are smoother with good tires.
Clean your spreader of any fertilizer or grass seed left over from last season.
Order your products for the season. Good quality grass seed, soil and premium mulch for your gardens and potting soil for planters and window boxes.
Plan out your planting for your vegetable garden and purchase plants to start indoors.
Research new annual flower varieties to try along your flower beds.
Look into adding perennials, shrubs and trees to spots in your yard. Really take a good look at your gardens. Notice any bare spots that could use some more interest.
There's so much to do very quickly when the Spring thaw hits. Be ready. It will be here soon.
